Scott Adams' Brazilian-flavored music show, "The Sounds of Brazil!" makes its return to Chicago area radio airwaves this Wednesday after over five months away. The radio program will now be heard Wednesday nights at 7:00pm on WDCB-FM, the College of DuPage-owned public radio station out of suburban Glen Ellyn.
North suburban resident Scott Adams is the creator and host of "The Sounds of Brazil!," which he started in 1992. The show became known to Chicago audiences during its many years heard each weekend on WNUA-FM (when the station was still the Smooth Jazz format), starting in July 1992. It was most recently heard on WLFM-LP/Smooth 97.7 from March 2010, until the station flipped formats in late April 2012.
"The Sounds of Brazil!" is also syndicated out to radio stations in other markets and heard and via an Internet webcast. It now comes back home to Chicago where it started and belongs.
Not only is it a homecoming for the Chicago airwaves, but also for its new radio home. The very first radio station to ever air "The Sounds of Brazil!" was indeed WCDB-FM. The show premiered there in April 1992, before moving over to WNUA-FM just three months later. As of Wednesday, it returns back to WCBD-FM, more than 20 years after it exited.
The sun-splashed music on "The Sounds of Brazil!" covers Brazilian Jazz, Bossa Nova (both new and classic), Samba, and South American chill. It also looks at Brazilian-flavored songs from classic rock & pop artists.
During the show, fans can communicate with host Scott Adams live via a chat box on the BrazilClubUSA.com
website. For those who miss the show or want to hear more of this music, it can be heard later on "The Sounds of Brazil!" 24 hour webcast channel at ConnectBrazil.com
"The Sounds of Brazil!" will now be aired Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm-9:00pm on non-commercial, listener-supported WDCB-FM 90.9 or streamed online at that time at WDCB.org
